BOSTON (CBS) — The New England Patriots are showing plenty of support for the Boston Celtics during their playoff run.
New England head coach Bill Belichick and LeGarrette Blount were both in attendance for Friday night’s 111-104 Celtics win in Game 3 against the Atlanta Hawks. That duo, and many more Patriots, were on hand Sunday night for the C’s thrilling 104-95 overtime win in Game 4, most notably tight end Rob Gronkowski.
When Gronk is in the house, everyone knows it.
Also in attendance was Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who sat courtside and found himself involved with a handful of plays that went his direction.
Kraft and Gronkowski shared a somewhat awkward high-five/handshake before the game:
Belichick, who sat in a suite with many of his assistant coaches for Friday’s Game 3, was sitting behind the basket on Sunday night.
Guard Isaiah Thomas gave Blount, who was once again courtside for all the fun, his jersey following Boston’s dramatic win.
Now we have to wonder if there there is any way the Patriots can travel to Atlanta for Game 5 on Tuesday?
